It was a great 10th Anniversary of Da Vinci Fest
We were delighted that Sen. Amy Klobuchar joined us at the 10th Annual Da Vinci Fest, our celebration of art and science. It’s an opportunity for students to show their talents and smarts in a Science Fair, Art Fair, Film Fest, Spoken Word and Science Challenge events. But it’s also a big community event with educational exhibits, demonstrations and performances.
Sen. Klobuchar helped us kick off the Stillwater Science Challenge, an on-the-spot science competition in the manner of the Science Olympiad. Before that, she spoke about the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education in the economic competitiveness of the country.
As usual, there were incredible science projects and works of art by the students of the St. Croix Valley. Here’s a LINK TO THE WINNERS of the Art Fair, Science Fair and Science Challenge.
